Cleaning Tigerwood

The deck was thoroughly cleaned using Woodrich Brand cleaner EFC-38 followed by Woodrich Brand Citralic to neutralize and brighten the wood. Even though Tigerwood is a hardwood, it is important to note that low pressure but high flow was used to clean the deck properly and not damage the softer lines.

The deck was left for approximately 48 hours to dry before a light buffing was performed.  Cleaning can cause loose wood fibers to detach and give the wood a furry look.  Hardwood fibers in particular, if left, turn into painful splinters.

Tigerwood Deck Stain

Because of the sunlight, this deck is exposed to, a quality oil stain, Woodrich Brand Hardwood Wiping Stain, was applied.  The application method was to spray down a saturating coat of stain with a sprayer.  The product was then worked into the wood with a pad or hand rubbed with a soft cloth.
